This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Take notice that on March 29, 2007, at 9 a.m. (EST), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will convene a technical conference on RTO and ISO seams issues in the Eastern Interconnection. Members of the public are welcome to attend, and no pre-registration is required. The conference will be held at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426.
In a Commission proceeding in 2006, parties raised the issue of an electric utility's ability to benefit from an RTO/ISO's transmission system, markets and reliability investments while avoiding some or all of the costs attributable to membership in the RTO/ISO. The Commission found that this issue raised “generic concerns with implications applicable to all RTOs and ISOs and to all market participants with whom they interact, whether directly or indirectly.”  The Commission then announced its intention to establish a technical conference to hear from interested parties concerning this issue and other issues involving seams between RTO/ISOs and companies on their borders. Subsequently, the Commission determined that the western seams agenda should proceed on a separate track and held a technical conference on seams issues in the Western Interconnection in December 2006. Also, Commission staff heard concerns about seams issues between RTO/ISO markets in the Eastern Interconnection region. Hence, we have determined that the technical conference should include discussion of the broader range of RTO/ISO seams issues, but limited to the Eastern Interconnection. The Commission invites representatives of all regions to participate.
The Commission is now soliciting nominations for speakers at the technical conference. Persons wishing to nominate themselves as speakers should do so using this electronic link: https://www.ferc.gov/whats-new/registration/rto-03-29-speaker-form.asp. Such nominations must be made before the close of business, February 16, 2007 so that an agenda for the technical conference can be drafted and published.
An agenda will be issued prior to the conference. You may use the Commission's e-subscription service to be notified of future notices in this proceeding. Please visit http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/esubscription.asp.
